Bestovitch (aka Paul Best) was born in Dublin but has lived most of his life in Belfast. His first foray into electronic music scene was at the age of 16 as, he says, "the techno club in the city centre was the only one that would let us in at that age". It was there that classic acts such as Carl Cox, Dave Clarke and Leftfield acted as inspiration. Additional influences such as Aphex Twin and Squarepusher were the catalyst for his distinctive hardware-driven sound and Paul continues to collect and buy whichever synths and drum machines he can lay his hands on to create new sounds and patches. Consequently studio 'Bestovitch' is under a persistent threat of being overrun by cables, keyboards and boxes of sound but it's our humble opinion that he shouldn't have it any other way. To quote Paul directly "If it makes a bleep, bloop or percussive sound I'll use it".
